Another great exercise for the lower body is reverse lunges.
This exercise is multifunctional since it stimulates numerous muscles and can be applied for diverse goals. It challenges your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, calves and even your core muscles.
The reverse lunge can be used to mold your lower body, your booty and legs, and keep you strong. But it also cultivates balance and increases range of motion in your hip area.
Stand tall, standing with your feet hips apart, take a big step back and land on the ball of your feet. Be mindful to keep the front leg on a 90 degree angle and avoid that your knee passes your toes.
If you want to challenge yourself more, initiate the movement as normal but instead of returning the leg to the ground, bring the knee up towards your chest. Return to reverse lunge stance and repeat.
Remember, whether you want to lose weight, tone your body, gain strength or size,
all muscles must be trained.
